Noongar Budjar Rangers
Aboriginal NRM

The Noongar Boodjar Rangers was established in 2014 to provide members of the aboriginal community with ongoing work on Country. It was a priority for the Noongar Elders Advisory Group that young aboriginal people remain in the local community, close to family and with a connection to Boodjar (Country). Often a lack of local employment and job-ready skills made that difficult.

Since then, the enterprise has evolved to provide an agile and highly skilled workforce that undertakes a wide range of work across the region. The Rangers have worked on natural resource management projects with local governments, community groups and corporate businesses. Some of their key projects include:

  • Parkland restoration and ongoing maintenance of Burlong Pool in Northam;

  • Contract to maintain Northam Cemetary on behalf of the Shire of Northam;
  • Native seed collection and planting for Minesite revegetation projects;
  • Multiple site preparation and revegetation planting projects throughout the Wheatbelt.

Native seed collection has expanded the Noongar Boodjar Rangers' skills and capacity. With ancient knowledge, specialist equipment and expert training, the Rangers are uniquely equipped to provide a revegetation service that encompasses the whole process from collection through to cleaning, delivery and planting.

The Noongar Boodjar Rangers are a skilled workforce specialising in Wheatbelt natural resource management and are available for a wide range of projects. Contact us to find out more and to see if they can assist in your next project.
